Forget the strain take the train!
Our enchanting base for this wonderful holiday is a pretty little pueblo called Roses that stretches between the sea and mountains on Spains breath-taking Costa Brava. Relax on the beautiful beaches or hop aboard a pleasure cruise around the rocky coastline. A former Greek colony, youll find evidence of the city once built by these early settlers as well as a natural marina with a network of canals. Holiday highlights include our trip on the Little Yellow Train of the Pyrenees, one of the great railway journeys of the world where the track winds through leafy forests, past gushing streams and upwards to the mountain village of Font Romeu and a trip on the spectacular Rack Railway into the Pyrenees mountain sanctuary of Núria.
